Sheffield Eagles' try-scoring sensation Menzie Yere has been included in Papua New Guinea's 23-man Rugby League World Cup squad.
Yere is the most prolific try-scorer in British rugby league this season, scoring his 46th of the season in Sunday's 19-12 Championship Grand Final win over Batley.
He is joined in the Papua New Guinea squad by Wakefield hooker Paul Aiton and Huddersfield second rower Jason Chan.
Adrian Lam's squad also includes former Hunslet hooker Charlie Wabo and Newcastle Knights utility forward Neville Costigan, who will be playing for Hull KR in 2014.
The Kumuls will go into camp next Monday before departing for the UK a week later and will play Scotland in a warm-up match at Featherstone on October 19 ahead of their opening World Cup match against France in Hull on October 27.
